[texts]American Sahib - Muehl, John Frederick
Foreword IF I were to write a book about India . . . what would I say? Would I discuss the politics and economics of the country? Would I choose and display one of the dozen arbitrary sets of figures and statistics which purport to dis- close the condition of the people? Or would I write a novel, abstracting all of those intangible human factors which can be derived from every social equation? Well, really, I haven't much the heart to do either, for in the first place, they've been done before a...

"This is a book about the men of our Navy written by a man who must know as many of them, and know them as well, as anyone who ever wore the Navy's blue. Chaplain Maguire has, as much as any man I have ever known, a talent which is rare — the talent of knowing other men, not superficially or carelessly, or through a veil of personal preconception, but as they are. To the varied, exacting tasks of his profession, he brings deep sympathy for other men and wide tolerance of their human foibles...
